Is it worth the 8 bucks to buy Orcs Must Die Franchise pack? Or would I be just fine buying the Orcs Must Die 2 complete for 6.

Also complete noob question but when it says 2 pack next to a game it means you get 2 codes correct? I'm thinking if it really isnt necessary to buy the franchise pack then I'd just pick up the 2 pack of the second one and gift one to my sister
Thanks

Any thoughts on Far Cry 1 + 2? I haven't played either of them, but they're really cheap and they got good reviews. Do they still hold up after all this time? Worth getting both/one/neither?


I liked them, but it's been a long time since I played them.

I love that you can buy the Franchise Pack for $49.99 or individually for $2.50+2.50+37.99 = $43. Huh, $7 surcharge for buying the package? That's..... odd

Far Cry 1 is like Crysis. It's good when you're fighting humans, then it gets dumb when it introduces the sci-fi stuff. The AI can get a bit annoying sometimes too. Dumb as a rock at times, snipers with pistols at a hundred yards others.

FC2 is a mixed bag. Lot of good ideas though. Easily worth 2.50 though. I liked it quite a bit but a lot of people loathed it.

I'd say it's worth it but OMD1 isn't necessary really. I still like having both for the levels.

& it means one will go to your game library and the other goes to inventory. That would work to if you wanted to do that. Co-op is supposed to be a highlight of it.

I bought a 2 pack of orcs must die 2, and one of them goes to my inventory. Then I bought another complete pack, and i still only have one gift copy in my inventory. What a scam.

Far Cry is definitely tempting. I sure do have enough games to play to last me till the next winter though... that's been a huge justification to not buy too many games on this sale. Not to mention next semester will probably keep me busy. ;)

You never ever get an extra copy of a game you already own on Steam unless it explicitly says so.

Did you buy another copy, or did you buy another GIFT copy?

Oehhh Far Cry 3 is tempting me... but I will wait untill I've finished at least 75% of my backlog. Or at least untill I have built myself a new PC that can actually run this baby in it's full glory. My phenom II 955 and dual HD5850 will not be able to, unfortunately.

That is the one thing I really hate about Steam. The whole bits of packages you already own disappear into the ether making any bundle that has at least one item you already own pointless to purchase. It's also what I love about other retailers these days, because not only are they beating Steam's prices but if you get a bundle with them, you can do whatever you want with your extra keys.

Muwhahaha

So I was poking around on files from an old drive, looking for Far Cry (it been free back in 2007?). I also stumble across a Far Cry 2 that I have no recollection of. I also find the other games that had been free for a short bit in 2007: Ghost Recon (yay, was considering buying a few days ago)k, Prince of Persia: Sands of time (picked up the whole PoP pack for $12.50 in spring), Rayman's Raving Rabbits, and CC Gold (still have on CD).

Don't even get me starting on crack open ye olde CD binder.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

Amazon is price matching the DD. Plus they have a 10 dollar discount for Prime members. Do anyone know if it works with Steam or is it still Uplay?

Uplay games from not from the Ubi store need to be downloaded from (Amazon/Gamefly/GG) the first time. There was a recent report that after installing that are registered to your Uplay and can be re-installed from Uplay.

Well nothing for me today. I mean there is literally nothing for me to buy unless I get DLC packs because I own all the base games. Also I don't own Doom 3 BFG but Modded Regular Doom 3 is cheaper and better anyway.

In fact you can buy every Doom game for like half that of BFG edition.

I actually did not care for Far Cry 3. It looks amazing but took me a long time to get running smoothly on my machine. I thought the story was pretty ridiculous and just couldn't get into it. There is tons to do but all of it is very repetitive and almost too easy at times. I do like how you have options of being stealthy or just sitting back and sniping. Even though I say I didn't like it much I did finish the game at 100%. It took me about 30 hours total.

I think it's only for Amazon Student members which is fucking stupid because I am not a student anymore, I graduated college and I have my wonderful prime subscription.

It's uPlay and not Steam. In fact Far Cry 3 from Steam would register with uPlay too but only the Steam version has Steam integration or what small integration there is.

Far Cry 3 imo is ok, but the real problem that turned me off is the side missions are so goddamn repetitive. Oh you capture a base to get a new fast travel point, here are the same 3 missions just in different locations over and over again. The main missions are good, but the side missions have not made me want to come back to it. I eventually will, but that's after I get over my current RPG addiction, lol.

Where are you seeing the 10 dollar discount?

The first 2 pack i bought add one to my library, and one to my gift. I would expect to have a second copy if i buy another complete pack as gift?

Did you buy another copy, or did you buy another GIFT copy?


I bought another as gift.

That is the one thing I really hate about Steam.

It's also what I love about other retailers these days, because not only are they beating Steam's prices but if you get a bundle with them, you can do whatever you want with your extra keys.


I did not even own the game before I bought the 2 pack.

EDIT: Never mind it shows up after I restart steam.

Doom BFG, and Doom+Expansion all show up as separate entries in your Steam Library. So, you can still mod the non-BFG version.

I ended up getting it on Amazon DD for 27 bucks. Would've preferred to get it on Steam, but the 10 dollars off, plus a GC balance made it too good to pass up. I'll just have to deal with the Ama Downloader.
